Following a very successful concert at St Peter and St Paul Church in Ringwood on Saturday 23 February 2002 , The band is delighted to announce the final total donated to St Paul 's Church, Bisterne renovation fund as £842.50.The concert was very well attended with numbers in excess of 200. Many of our Vice Presidents and loyal supporters were also present and hopefully enjoyed the varied program of music. The band looks forward to future collaborations with our local churches and hope that everyone who attended the concert enjoyed listening as much as we enjoyed playing.
It is with great regret that the band announces the retirement of Alan Hughes our Bass Trombone player. Alan will be leaving us after the Area Qualifiers on 6 April 2002. He has been a long and loyal member of the band often traveling long distances on a regular basis to attend rehearsals. We would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his dedication and commitment and wish him a long and happy retirement.
